Shareholder benefits, discounts and perks

While investments should be chosen for their potential dividends and capital growth, shareholder perks can be a welcome bonus.

While we don't believe you should buy a share purely for the perk, the addition of the perk can make owning the share more desirable. Buying shares couldn’t be easier through our award-winning stockbroking service which lets you invest online from just £5.95 per deal. Your account can be opened in minutes so you can be free to enjoy the perks and potential returns from your shares by the end of the day.

The information contained is believed to be correct as of September 2013 for investors holding shares in a Hargreaves Lansdown Vantage Account, with the exception of BT Group perks which are not available to shareholders in a nominee. However, the companies concerned reserve their right to change their rules and regulations regarding shareholders, or withdraw any concessions at any time. There is normally a period of time before new shareholders become eligible for concessions. We have included the name and telephone number of the Registrars with each entry so you can check that the terms have not changed before investing.

The value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. If you are unsure of the suitability of investing in shares or of the Vantage Fund & Share Account please seek advice.

If you wish to claim any discount or perk you are entitled to, or have a query regarding any shareholder perk, please do not hesitate to phone us on 0117 900 9000 or email us.
